Judge for yourselves...
 
'Since President Trump won the Republican nomination, the majority of
his companies' real estate sales are to secretive shell companies that
obscure the buyers' identities, a USA TODAY investigation has found.
 
Over the last 12 months, about 70% of buyers of Trump properties were
limited liability companies – corporate entities that allow people to
purchase property without revealing all of the owners' names. That
compares with about 4% of buyers in the two years before.'
 
<https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/06/13/trump-property-buyers-make-clear-shift-secretive-llcs/102399558/>
 
'Since Election Day, Trump's businesses have sold 28 of those U.S.
properties for $33 million. The sales include luxury condos and
penthouses in Las Vegas and New York and oceanfront lots near Los
Angeles. The value of his companies' inventory of available real estate
remains above a quarter-billion dollars.
 
Profits from sales of those properties flow through a trust run by
Trump's sons. The president is the sole beneficiary of the trust and can
withdraw cash any time.
 
The increasing share of opaque buyers comes at a time when federal
investigators, members of Congress and ethics watchdogs are asking
questions about Trump's sales and customers in the U.S. and around the
world. Some Congressional Democrats have been asking for more detail
about buyers of Trump's domestic real estate since USA TODAY's initial
report.
 
The real estate cache, which Trump has never fully revealed and is not
required by law to disclose, offers unique opportunity for anyone to
steer money to a sitting President. The increase in purchasers shielded
by LLCs makes it far more difficult to track who is paying the President
and his companies for properties ranging in price from $220,000 to $10
million – or more.
 
The clear post-nomination shift since last year to more shell-company
purchases is unique to sales by Trump's companies, even in his own
towers and neighborhoods. Condos owned by others in the same buildings,
and sold during the same time period, were bought by LLCs in no more
than 20% of the transactions. In some areas, the share was far less.
 
"If what's going on is somebody is buying something from The Trump
Organization to buy favor, there's no way you'd ever figure out who that
person is or what favor they're trying to buy," said Jack Blum, a
Washington attorney specializing in offshore tax evasion and financial
crime and former staff lawyer for two U.S. Senate committees.'

Yes, actually, he can.
 
But he didn't.
 
He refused to answer questions with no valid grounds to do so.

Sigh.
 
Waiting with bated breath to hear the wingnuts about the shooting in
Virginia this morning.

Almost agree. The shooter is dead. Hope he died slowly.
Identity is known and the shooter has posted anti-Trump statements on social media.
Therefore it's Trump's fault, in collusion with the Russians.
Seriously...it could've been so much worse.

Anyone that wants others to be killed is undeniably evil. I don't
know anyone who would like to see Trump murdered.

Not all are, just like not all Rightists are. Just an extremely small
minority. None but one on RSG is scum, and he isn't a leftist.

Sounds like an unhinged Bernie fan. Leftist violent rhetoric is to blame.

Without doubt.
Maybe now the GOP will think again about the NRA.

A number of unhinged leftists have been in the news...including a NY
play that enacts the assassination of Trump. It all needs to stop.
There are weak minded, embittered individuals who are influenced by the
Trump hate.

What exactly did the NRA have to do with this?

I do have trouble believing that assault rifles are a legitimate part of
the 2nd amendment, given we only have two borders.
 
I also have trouble believing the assailant was a Bernie supporter. He
had a job.

Funny...
 
...that play is Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare...
 
...and you never once mentioned the version that had an Obama-Caesar
murdered.

Very true. Portland Oregon is a classic example.

If a Democrat was being accused with even a tenth of what's already been proven about Trump and his team, you extremists would be totally apoleptic. And you know it.
 
Bwaahaahaa.

Tom Cotton said it best. This isn't even a bad spy novel. It is
absurd lies. It is what liberals do.

If President Trump were shot these cretins would be high
fiving
and slapping each on the back.
 
Public support of the Resistance by elected officials leads to the
inevitable.
Leftists are scum. We see that in RSG every day.

There have been organized violent attacks by leftists all across
the country since the elections.
